Cocamido propyl hydroxyl sultaine (CAHS) is a synthetic amphoteric surfactant, derived from fatty acid of coconut oil. Sodium bisulfite and Epichlorohydrin are reacted to fatty acids (Lauric acid) from coconut oil to get CAHS. It is a pure liquid, with a mild or characteristic odor. Its pH is from 6.5 to 8 (5% aqueous solution). It has various groups in its structure, which can counter the other ions form other constituents and react with them to form a stable product. CAHS is mainly used to improve product appearance or quality & stability. It acts as a conditioner, foaming agent, surfactant, anti-static agent, and thickener. As a mild surfactant, it moderately cleanses the skin or hair and helps deliver other ingredients contained in a product, particularly cleansing and moisturizing ones. It is found in hundreds of products, including foam bath lotion, shampoos, facial cleansers, personal hygiene products and baby washing products. The key advantages are included low content of inorganic salts, chloroacetic acid impurities and less irritation.
